I clear a blank
area in the room
with the intention
of work space.

It is restful--
empty of things
a place to fill and create
no pictures
no clutter
no nothing

Leaving it awhile
I return to find
it filled with
my children who have
moved in
with their toy
castles, soldiers, kings
princesses and trains.

The space created
for imagination and ideas
filled just right.

Marsha, I love this. And I haven't read them all, but your poetry touches me where "me" is. You make me smile.
